Upcoming Outings

For over 70 years the IRRS has held hundreds of outings to locations of railway interest, both in Ireland and abroad. The nature of outings and activities have evolved with the developments of Irish railways. Examples include visits to Irish railway engineering facilities (exclusive to IRRS members) and diesel hauled excursion trains to unusual locations. Forthcoming Society outings are detailed below:
